De Blasio, NYPD commissioner try to quell firestorm after officer murders

December 22, 2014
De Blasio and New York Police Commissioner William Bratton spoke at a joint press conference late Monday, following two days of criticism from union officials and ex-city leaders who have accused the mayor of stoking an anti-police atmosphere. 
"We have to move forward," de Blasio said. He said earlier that the political debate will be dealt with "in due time." 
Bratton, who appears to be playing the role of intermediary between union leaders and the mayor's office, said he spoke with leadership of all the police unions, and claimed they have agreed on "standing down" until after the funerals of the officers.
